Reminder - Upcoming Seminar and Training Sessions

Post date: Jun 20, 2017 1:17:30 PM

Our Dog Park Ambassador Training sessions and Canine Body Language Seminar are coming right up! We hope you will join us for these fun and informative events.

Please note that there is NO ongoing commitment required to be a Dog Park Ambassador. All we ask is that you attend the training, and when you are at the park with your dog, be an advocate for the park, help ensure the rules are upheld, and encourage people to become members.

Dog Park Ambassador Training

Wednesday, June 21 & Monday, June 26, 6-7pm

Ingrid's Park (training park) at the Shaker Field Dog Park

These sessions will allow us to observe dog-dog behavior at the dog park in real time. Each attendee is invited to bring one (ONLY one) of their own dogs (on leash!) with them to the training, as we will be using our own dogs in order to observe different behaviors and interactions. The session will be led by Michelle Grimes, CPDT-KA, CAP-1, CGCE. Michelle is a vet tech at SAVES and owner of K9 Insights (
